Look how well it worked, because everyone panicked the first time around everyone is listening to the rules and wearing masks.

Panic is never good, it means people don't think which never leads to a good outcome.
panic is great, haven't had to shop for toilet paper in months......

100% but they aren't making the information/data available because they don't want people panicking.

I'm not saying I don't agree with the approach...
Isn't "panic" good? At the end of the day, the best way to control what's going on is for a lot of people to be much more vigilant.

I don't think we need panic. Doesn't everyone already know people who are sick this time around? Shouldn't that be enough to convince people to be more careful?

Being that it seems most people think that it's binary - lockdown or regular life, I don't think they're overestimating people's tendency to think in black and white, and not take a measured approach.

It's a conscious decision they've (leaders) made so there's definitely some logic involved. Even if I may not fully agree...

If masks were the norm, you wouldn't find it binary.

I ate out once indoors begging of June when Miami re-opened.

Rest has been outdoors and to go. I don't miss anything.

I don't shop for clothing but man, I'd be worried for all the families shopping in store for chagim without masks

How much did you overpay for the toilet paper?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You do realize there is whole frum world outside ddf, living life without masks. Not getting covid, not dying, and totally unaware of all the anger, frustration and name calling here. Shopping for clothing every day and not having issues, totally unaware of the controversy there causing here, fascinating.

By the same token, most adults in the broader NY area are wearing masks every time they go out and are surviving. Somehow it's only frum people that have a problem with this particular way of life.

And what was the price of the supposed immunity?

And the non stop charity ads I see about hundreds who died from coronavirus, are you single handedly supporting the widows and orphan's.

All that some selfish people can shop without a mask.

This is something that isn't being taken into account when people are being told to either not test or not report cases. A misinformed and undereducated public is dangerous. Infections that could be dealt with quickly and easily can C"V become much more serious.

Doesn't help when one of the most prominent community leaders is consistently espousing the claim that people only died because they went to the hospital.
